I talked to the cemetery today and it looks like we are going to have your headstone in time for an unveiling on October 26, the day after your birthday. I guess we'll send out an email inviting everyone. Mom and I want to do a memory book to give out with some of your artwork, photos and things people have written or said about you. I think I'd like to read parts of some of the letters that I've written to you. I don't know if I'll be able to, though.
Small, beautiful birds with a lot of different colors on their wings, shimmery like ducks, are always landing outside on the windowsill next to where I sit. Whenever I inch a little closer to get a better look they fly away. There is no sneaking up on them and they just won't stay for very long.
It isn't getting easier.
